Shostakovich achieved fame in the Soviet Union under the patronage of Leon Trotsky 's chief of staff Mikhail Tukhachevsky , but later had a complex and difficult relationship with the Stalinist bureaucracy. His music was officially denounced twice, in 1936 and 1948, and was periodically banned. Despite this, he also received accolades and state awards and served in the Supreme Soviet of the RSFSR . Despite the official controversy, his works were popular and well received. After a period influenced by Prokofiev and Stravinsky , Shostakovich developed a hybrid style, as exemplified by his opera Lady Macbeth of the Mtsensk District (1934). This single work juxtaposed a wide variety of trends, including the

Russian composer noted for his daring and experimental style. He was frequently in and out of the government’s favor, yet won the Stalin prize in 1940. In both 1936 and 1948, he was publicly and severely reprimanded for failing to do his "duty" as a Soviet composer, but was restored to popularity after 1957. He first studied music with his mother, a professional pianist, and at the age of 13, entered the Petrograd Conservatory. In 1925, he completed his studies there, and his graduation piece was his Symphony No. One, a work that brought him immediate attention internationally. His work was heavily influenced by the political events of the time, and he was driven to use his compositions to give voice to revolutionary socialism. This was most conspicuous in his Symphonies Two and Three, "To October" and "The First of May." His first opera, "The Nose," was written to incorporate what he knew of contemporary Western music, but his second, "The Lady Macbeth of the Mtsensky District," was a score of immense brilliance and is the culminating achievement of this period of his life. Acclaimed in Russia, Western Europe and the United States, the opera was first performed in 1934. One year later, Stalin attended a performance and was shocked by the open depiction of adultery and the opera’s suggestive musical passages. The work was immediately banned, and Shostakovich was out of favor with his government. For quite some time, he wrote no more operas or ballets, although he later revised "Lady MacBeth" in 1963, calling it "Katerina Izmailova." In 1937, he wrote his Fifth Symphony, an act of repentance, and he was back in favor with Stalin.

May I once again make the suggestion that we should have appropriately “black bordered” pages for non-PD composers? The way I envisage this being done is:
  • Use a modified version of the general composer template. The design would retain the name, date, picture, etc, but use a completely different colour scheme. The options to “Add a piece to this composer page” would be unavailable. The Contents list would be missing. (i.e. Contents: Top - A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z) The page would be locked down to prevent editing except by a sysop and the "How to edit this template" link would be missing.

Russian Revelations
Finding History In My Own BackYard The works of musicians in the 20th century (and in some ways the world's history) were greatly affected by world relations. A leading composer of the 20th century, Dimitri Shostakovich's works are still a very controversial issue today. In fact, he was never simply a composer. Both famed and defamed by Stalin's cruelty, Shostakovich was resilient. He also proved that art, and in this case music, could withstand the most inhuman and abusive regimes. He was a cultural icon and a symbol of inspiration. However, exactly what he symbolized has changed over time. Whether or not his works would have been the same if not affected by criticism and Russian nationalism during the cold war still remains the question Dimitri's music is distinguished by its energetic rhythms and rich melodies, which are a reflection of Romani (Gypsy) tunes of Eastern Europe. Most of his large works follow traditional forms, and his harmonic style is simple and direct. These symphonies, with an addition of the 10th and 13th, represented the deep suffering of the people and Shostakovich's courageous challenge against the terrible restrictions of the government, which could be expressed no other way.

Dmitri Shostakovich
Many artists have claimed to be products of the Bolshevik Revolution, but Dmitri Shostakovich (September 25, 1906 - August 9, 1975) stands alone in level of celebrity and artistic achievement. The best-known composer of the Soviet era was born in St. Petersburg to a cultured family that sided with left-wing political groups. His paternal grandfather, Boleslav Shostakovich, was active as a revolutionary in the 1860s, while his father, Dmitri Boleslavovich, was a government engineer who supported trade unions. His mother, Sofia Vassilyevna, was a piano teacher who gave Dmitri Dmitrievich his first lessons at age eight before he entered the Petrograd Conservatory at thirteen. He then received training in piano from Leonid Nikolayev, training in composition from Maximilian Steinberg, and encouragement from conservatory headsman Alexander Glazunov , himself a notable composer. Shostakovich was considered promising by the conservatory staff; he was active as a student composer and wrote his First Symphony as a graduation piece in 1925. It was so impressive a work that it premiered in Leningrad, Berlin, and Philadelphia, vaulting Shostakovich to the forefront of Soviet art.

Dmitri Shostakovich (1906 - 1975)
Dmitri Shostakovich was born in St. Petersburg (now Leningrad) and died in Moscow. His entire musical career was therefore spent within Russia's Communist system, and in many ways it is clear that he had to strike a balance between his own artistic inclinations and the demands of the state. He was taught by Glazunov among others, learning piano and composition and graduating from the St. Petersburg (Petrograd) Conservatory at the age of 19 with his first symphony. This is a youthful, precocious work demonstrating his musical talents in no uncertain terms, with some similarities in approach to Prokofiev 's Classical Symphony. Though this was an early success, his music didn't always enjoy the approval of the Soviet authorities. His opera "The Nose" received some criticism and "Lady Macbeth of the Mtsensk District" received oven more. In later years he was to enjoy more artistic freedom, but under Stalin composers and other artists ran the risk of their work being labelled anti-state "formalism". In some cases this could lead to "disappearances" so the threat was very real indeed. Shostakovich withdrew his 4th symphony before its premier for this reason and it wasn't performed until later under more liberal times. Some of Shostakovich's work seems to be simply paying his dues as an upright citizen but in many cases, although his music might outwardly be conforming with the party line, there is nevertheless the feeling that he is rebelling against this.
